Updated Curriculum, New Report Cards Coming to Ontario Schools | Leadership to change our schools' cultures for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Our schools are at the foundation of a fair and competitive Ontario. Today, our province's publicly funded education system ranks among the best in the world, preparing our students for academic and future success. To build on this progress and make our schools even better at unleashing every student's full potential, Ontario is taking immediate steps to give students and parents better information about a child's progress and launching an ambitious multi-year initiative to modernize curriculums and assessment tools from Kindergarten to Grade 12.

Digital Leadership Is Action, Not Position

Digital Leadership Is Action, Not Position | Leadership to change our schools' cultures for the 21st Century | Scoop.it

by Matthew X. Joseph (picture to left)

 

"While “the boss,” or principal, may be the one who leads a school’s digital initiative, any staff member or student can demonstrate leadership to enhance learning. As Donald McGannon said, “leadership is action, not position.” School leadership, which is the process of enlisting and guiding the talents and energies of teachers, students, and families toward achieving common educational aims, is not exclusively for administrators. With the new paradigm shift in education and digital learning, all staff and students can be leaders. 

 

"What follows are some key leadership attributes that I’ve observed during my years as a school and district leader and of the leadership opportunities that digital learning technologies bring."
